As experienced and qualified tree surgeons serving the Christchurch, Ringwood, and Bournemouth area, it’s never pleasant to have to fell a tree, but occasions arise when that is the only option and, in such circumstances, it requires a fully-trained professional to do the job safely.
Tree felling is the cutting down of an otherwise healthy tree, often because it poses a danger to its surroundings, either because it is structurally unstable and presents a falling hazard, because its continued growth will lead to damage to adjoining buildings, or because it is encroaching onto a neighbour’s property.
First we make sure that the tree isn’t going to cause any damage during the felling process by falling before we’re ready for it. This is particularly important in tree that are ill-balanced, either through erratic growth or from sustaining damage. This involves bracing the tree, so that its own weight is secured prior to us felling it. All work carried out to BS3998 (2010 tree work recommendations). All staff are MPC trained and undergo reassessment ever 5 years and adhere to AFAG guidelines.
Felling trees from the ground in a safe manner adhering to all guidelines
If we haven’t the room for directional felling, we will resort to sectional felling instead. Felling of trees in confined spaces over property by using rigging equipment we remove the tree in a safe controlled manner, adhering to AFAG guidelines.
If the tree we removed was unstable, but otherwise healthy, you may wish to keep the stump where it is. However, if you wish us to remove the stump too, it is easily done with one of our high powered industrial stump grinders, which will reduce the stump to wood chip in mere moments, leaving the area free for replanting.
